Greek Mountain Tea also known as Ironwort or Shepherd’s Tea,
is a sweet smelling herb, grown in a region south of Thessaloniki,
Greece. Harvested by hand, the 30cm plants are gathered together
and using a scythe, cut approximately 3cm from the ground.
Once the sorted tea has been bundled, it is hung in special drying sheds.
This process of shade-drying produces a high quality herbal infusion.
Spicy and aromatic, Greek Mountain Tea is traditionally
used to aid digestion, strengthen the immune system
and suppress the common cold.
